Makes: About 3 cups; 8 to 10 servings
1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces semisweet or milk chocolate, finely chopped
In a medium saucepan, stir the cream, brown sugar, and salt over medium heat until the sugar has melted and the cream is hot but not boiling. Gradually stir in the peanut butter until melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
Transfer to a ceramic fondue pot and set over a low flame. Scatter the chocolate over the top and let stand for about 1 minute to allow it to soften. Using a fondue fork or a skewer, swirl the melted chocolate over the top of the fondue. Regulate the heat, if possible, to keep the fondue warm, not hot.
